Construction of the exterior of the UK pavilion for the Shanghai World Expo has been completed.

The Seed Cathedral is the centerpiece, with its 20-meter-high cube-like structure covered by 60 thousand slim, transparent acrylic rods, extending outward and quivering in the breeze.

Each rod contains seeds, symbolizing the UK's contribution to the Expo theme of "Better City, Better Life." Visiting British Foreign Secretary David Miliband says the Expo aims to demonstrate the UK as a creative, innovative and advanced technological nation. After the Expo, all of the seed-encased acrylic poles will be given to China as a symbol of continuing friendship between Britain and China.
